ALPHARETTA, Ga. — The puppies at Alpharetta, Georgia’s Canine Assistants have a destiny and a purpose.
They will grow up to be service dogs.
These highly trained, huge-hearted canines help physically and emotionally, enabling the disabled to have independence, confidence and happiness.
So imagine when one of these puppies, perfectly suited for a life of service, is born less than perfect.
“He was born without a foot,” explained Dr. Kent Bruner, Canine Assistants veterinarian and husband of founder Jennifer Arnold. “What we think happened is the umbilical cord got wrapped around his foot and caused that foot to not have a normal blood supply.”
